Scottish whisky distillery Tomatin has today (19th February 2018) announced the release of the final two expressions in its limited edition Five Virtues series.
The series draws inspiration from the elements of nature – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – with each single malt expression enjoying a limited run of 6,000 bottles and a focus on the effects of different cask maturation.
The Metal edition has a distinct character expressed by the distillery’s 12 beautiful copper stills. Every drop of Tomatin whisky flows through the uniquely shaped and sized stills, giving the whisky its own distinctive characteristics. Metal is matched with classic first fill Bourbon barrels, demonstrating the definitive Tomatin style.
Highland distiller’s Tomatin has unveiled their People Pairing quiz that aims to match personality traits to different expressions in their core range of whiskies. Based on the notion that certain personality traits could match the different characteristics of the distiller’s core range, a likely pairing can be suggested via an online test on the Tomatin website (http://www.tomatin.com/people-pairing).
Tomatin did it again. The distillery added another smokey and mystical whisky beast to their whisky range, Cù Bòcan 2006 vintage, a limited edition.
The Cù Bòcan brand is named after a mythical Highland hellhound which was rumoured to haunt the village of Tomatin and was launched in 2013 as a lightly peated alternative to the traditional fruity flavours of Tomatin single malt.

Tomatin Distillery is celebrating after being crowned a winner in two categories, Environment and Excellence, at the prestigious Highland & Islands Food & Drink Awards 2017.
Picking up the Environment Award for its commitment to responsible environmental practice, the distillery boasts various green schemes including being the first in Scotland to install an environmentally efficient steam boiler. Its eco-friendly status is further boosted as locally produced sustainable virgin wood pellets fuel the boiler. This shift from heavy fuel oil to biomass has been critical in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the use of non-fossil fuels.
